When it comes to planning a wedding there are lots of numbers involved.
Guest numbers, invitation numbers, cost numbers etc. etc.
But there are two numbers that are completely overlooked amongst the jungle mathematics behind your perfect day.
Those two numbers are 80 and 20.

As someone who trains many Brides, I know that one of the key areas all brides want to work on is their stomach. With most Brides stating… ‘I want a flat tummy’.
Believe it or not, the desire to achieve this outcome can be as important to some Brides as the wedding itself!
And yet they fail to apply my 80/20 rule of getting a flat stomach.
‘What is the 80/20 rule?’……I hear you ask.
Well, Bride-To-Be, let me explain…
The 80/20 rule is my way of describing the split, in terms of importance, nutrition and exercise is in order to get a flat stomach.
80% of your results WILL come from nutrition
20% of your results WILL come from exercise.
No amount of sit-ups, crunches, leg raises or any other ab exercise will out-do poor nutrition when it comes to getting a flat tummy.
We constantly see picture like the one to the right of celebrities who have that ‘perfect’ flat stomach and wish that we could achieve the same for ourselves.
And most women often believe that theses results are down to youth, exercise and ‘having the right genes’.
And whilst all three of the above will play a minor role in the outcome, most people fail to realise how hard and how disciplined these celebrities are with their nutrition to get in great shape.
I guarantee that someone like Michelle Keegan will follow a nutrition plan that doesn’t vary so much and is based around a natural, whole foods, low sugar, high protein diet. There will be lots of water involved, minimal alcohol consumption, and plenty of nutritious well-prepared meals.
Getting a flat stomach isn’t necessarily EASY. That isn’t what I am getting at.
Getting a flat stomach can be very SIMPLE.
The simple part refers to understanding that 80% of your results will come from a good clean nutrition plan.
The harder part is being disciplined enough to stick to it!
